Combining adrenaline-fuelled excitement with the timeless pleasure of good vine, Viganj is a must-visit for the contemporary tourist.

Kapetanska kuća Orebić

Food and Drink

In Orebić, food is not merely nutrition—it's an expression of love for the land. From grapes tended in sun-kissed vineyards to fish pulled fresh from the Adriatic Sea, every dish tells a genuine story of the Dalmatian coast.

Toast with Terrific Grk

Savor the Simply Scrumptious Peka

Delve into the authentic flavour of Dalmatia with Peka—an irresistible blend of meat or seafood and vegetables slow-cooked under a 'peka' bell. Its unmatchable tenderness and rich seasoning have seen it crowned as a 'must-try' during your Croatian visit.

Relish Fresh Adriatic Seafood

The bounty of the Adriatic has long served as Orebić's lifeline. Marvel at the wealth of shellfish, bream, bass, and more, served with a drizzle of local olive oil and a glass of posip white wine in oceanfront restaurants.

Bite into the Beautiful Black Risotto

The widely acclaimed black risotto is not merely a plateful of food; it's a culinary art. Savour the rich flavour of cuttlefish dyed rice, set off by a hint of garlic and a sprinkle of warming red pepper against the backdrop of a stunning Adriatic sunset.

Get Gobsmacked by Gustatory Gelato

No visit to Orebić is complete without a delightful scoop (or three!) of artisan gelato. Offering a refreshing respite from balmy afternoons, this sweet Italian import is a must-try in the town centre's numerous impeccably-rated gelaterias.

Destination Essentials

Boasting a warm Mediterranean climate, Orebić’s climate renders it a fine destination all year through. However, to enjoy balmy beach days and outdoor activities, consider visiting between late June and late August, Orebić's hot season.

This period witnesses gloriously clear skies, perfect for sunbathing on the golden sandy beaches of Plaža Divna or exploring the historic facets of this quaint port town. But, as always, with warmth comes the influx of tourists. If you prefer a less crowded experience and comfortable weather, consider a Spring (March-May) or Autumn (September-November) visit. Cooler temperatures offer ideal conditions for hiking up Sveti Ilija and with fewer holidaymakers around, it's perfect for a tranquil Dalmatian getaway.
